Oboz Footwear has issued an immediate challenge to all hikers! Between now and December 6th, every hike can earn a tree planted by Trees for the Future.

"It's simple," said Oboz' Taylor Keeley. "Any hike counts for one more tree. With Thanksgiving there’s time to get outside, work off the turkey and the trimmings, be thankful and help plant more trees.”

Participating is easy. Hikers take a hike, walk or snowshoe anywhere and anytime between now and December 6th. Then, they log on to actbolder.com to record their hike, adding photos and information if they’d like.

When the challenge is complete, Oboz, through Trees for the Future, will plant a tree for all the hikes accumulated and logged on actbolder.com.
